72nd/Cicero TIF

Designation: 1999    Terminated: 2012

The 72nd/Cicero TIF district encompasses the 2.5 million-square-foot Ford City industrial complex, originally built in WWII for testing airplane engines. The TIF is intended to help improve the facility's building defects to facilitate its continued use by Tootsie Roll Industries and other West Lawn companies. Targeted projects include repair and replacement of its roof, building systems, windows and floors. The 73-acre district is also available to help with asbestos abatement inside the complex and landscaping improvements on its grounds.
